In celebration of the 35th anniversary of Epcot, the Disney Parks Blog has announced that the 22nd Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will feature 35 marketplaces. That’s 13 more food kiosks than the 2016 event.
The menu they’re working on sounds pretty great!
Chefs are busy at work on new dishes for the Marketplaces, paired with wines, beers and ciders. We got a taste of the new crispy chicken with griddled cornbread and red-eye gravy for the Farm Fresh Marketplace and the spicy Korma Chicken with cucumber-tomato salad, almonds, cashews and warm naan bread from the India Marketplace– just two of the intriguing and delectable new tastes that will be in the 2017 cookbook. Another favorite was the charcuterie in a cone from the Spain Marketplace, perfect for strolling and tasting. For a favorite sweet, it’s back to India with the pistachio cardamom cake with a dollop of chocolate coconut mousse. And these are just a sampling of dozens of new tastes.
Also confirmed to be returning is the Eat to the Beat concert series are special events at many of the Disney resorts.
This year’s festival begins on August 31, 2017 and ends on November 13, 2017.
